(May 4, 2014, Cliff Morgan, Ventura Raceway) Ventura Raceway continued its 2014 season with a full program of exciting short track racing action featuring six adult classes battling on the 1/5 mile Ventura oval. Racing was exciting and fast paced on the night with racers battling to score points as the VRA season approaches its mid way point.

Austin DeBlauw took his first ever VRA Sprint Car win in a hard fought battle with Luke Boles. DeBlauw leading all but the first 5 laps of the 30 lap VRA Sprint Car feature. His win puts him in second place just behind point leader Kyle Smith after six events. Following DeBlauw to the checkered flag were Luke Boles, with his best ever VRA Sprint Car finish, Kyle Smith, Tom Hendricks and Brian Camarillo. Heat race action wins went to Luke boles and Austin DeBlauw.

VRA Senior Sprints continued their season with one heat race for the 4 cars in the pits. 2014 Champion and opening night main event winner Clif Warren took the heat win. The twenty lap feature was all Clif Warren as he put his number 25 out front and was never headed. Following Warren to the finish line were Mike Cook, Chris Meredith and George Tuttle.

In IMCA Modified action the racing was fast, furious and very clean. 2014 series champ Robbie Witwer took the lead from Andrew Phipps on lap 11 and then led to the checker holding off Andrew Phipps, Donald Houghton, Larry Wise and current point leader Josh Vogt. Two heat races were run with wins going to Dennis Eckert and Andrew Phipps.

VRA Mod Lites were on hand with six cars in the pits. The night's 20 lap feature was a battle between 2013 champion Ricky Lewis and the series point leader Dave Dotson. Following Lewis across the line were Dave Dotson, Jeffrey Fry, Kim Lewis and Kris Kordner. They ran one heat race with the win going to Jeffrey Fry.

Zack Peterson continued where he left off last race with another feature win. The two time track champion and current point leader, led all 20 laps as he took the 4th feature win of the 2014 season. Following Peterson across the finish line were Jeff Long, Scott Olsen, Bruce Fink and Matt Peterson. Scott Olsen took their 8 lap heat race wins.

VRA Dwarf Cars were also on the card Saturday night. In Senior action Mike Lewis continued to lead the class after taking their 20 ,lap feature win over Bill VanPraag, George Calvo, Bob Kaufman and Dave Knight. Bob Kaufman took the win in their one heat race. In Pro action 22 cars started the feature with Brian Saxton leading early only to be passed by Kevin Calvo on lap 10. He then went on to lead the remaining laps to take his first VRA Feature win of 2014. following Calvo across the line were Saxton, Cody Majors, Thomas Velasquez and Chase Lippert. The Pros ran three heats with wins going to April Banuelos, Kevin Calvo and Eric Moore. Banuelos win was her first ever VRA win. 2013 series champ Johnny Conley continues to lead in points after four races in 2014

Racing resumes Saturday night May 10 with a very special event. For the first time in four years the USAC/CRA 410 Sprint Cars will make their only appearance at Ventura in 2014. These cars regularly race at Perris Speedway and have races here in the past putting on very exciting events. The race is a special event in tribute to Fred Thomson who raced and owned cars in California for many years. He was the father of Jim Thomson and grandfather of Brandon Thomson who both won races here at Ventura. Also on tap will be a special VRA Pro Dwarf Car Race in memory of Jim Scribellito who raced here for many season before moving to Texas to open his own speedway. He was seriously injured in a Dwarf car accident there and never fully recovered before passing away in 2013. These two special races will be ones to remember as drivers and crews do all they can to win these special events. Both races will have heats, semi mains and main events. We will be doing single car qualifying for the 410 sprint cars prior to their heat races.
